iblog for Peace

Peace efforts elsewhere in any conflict-troubled regions in the globe are always laudable. The Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict in Southeast Asia (GPPAC) is one of the active peace groups that continuously supports for

local-based peace campaigns such as in the case of Mindanao ravaged by decades of armed conflict. Until now, the Philippine government has yet to forge a sustainable peace agreement with the two rebel groups Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) whose continued armed struggle has negatively impacted the lives of the people in the countrysides and caused war-related expenditures on the part of the government.

You will familiarize yourself with various peace efforts and updates on these activities by visiting one of their recently-launched sites themed as iblog for peace. The blog icon is linked to their site.
